After the success of the 'Starsky & Hutch' film, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were offered the roles of Luke and Bo Duke. Neither accepted the offer, as they did not feel it payed tribute to the original series as Starsky & Hutch did. See more »
When the boys are in Atlanta and are confronted by the group of men after leaving the University, you can see the soot on their faces change between shots. See more »
...then you'd better not watch this movie. They've completely ruined the premise of the show. In the movie the Duke boys are idiots, Daisy is trampy, Roscoe is sinister, Boss Hogg is capable, Uncle Jessie is a criminal...only Cooter and Flash are true to the original characters. At least Enos is kinda close.
At one point they open the doors to get into the General Lee -- nuff said.
The original show may not have been great TV, but it was entertaining and the characters made sense. This movie is like Dumb & Dumber meets the Simple Life.
